    I would like to see this a year from now, lol - I bet it turns out nice. The roof was in good condition and the basic structure but the the rest is a redo! I would have tried the 30’s in price though!

    You really meant it when you said the sellers weren’t watching. Looks like the vandals were camping in the house, too. Wanted to say squatting, but after the bathroom pictures decided camping sounded better!

    Very sad. Why would anyone destroy a house like that?

    I’ve noticed through-out the years..On occasion I’ll see like gang signs on the back wall of a dry cleaners maybe or on a mailbox.To me, that proves nothing..Just how absolutly bottom of the barrel these thugs are.You never see the gang signs where they’ed really be seen by influential people.The other gross thugs that live in the same place on the other side of the tracks.

    Good Lord. I haven’t been on the site in awhile, so I’m busy catching up… This looks like the same neighborhood where the house still had a car in the garage and the roof was caving in. I think that was a few years back on the site. It looks like what was once called the Glenfair area. It’s sad when you see a home like this… destroyed. It’s a classic ranch home, fully destroyed. Sad. They don’t build homes like this anymore and when they’re gone, they’re gone…

    These homes were considered quite nice in the 70s. People who lived in them were affluent professionals. This style was a step up from the traditional ranch bungalow, because it had a much more aesthetically pleasing look and more living space. They also had upscale touches. It’s sad to see them fall into disrepair like this. Are any neighborhoods safe from the ravages of time?

    @ Picky,

    Yeah, I seriously doubt the sellers left that mess. Likely the previous owners turned the keys over to the bank who let it go unmonitored and squatters moved in and trashed it.
